Fixed Restorations

Crown and Bridge

Our crowns and bridges are made with the finest materials available today from internationally-known manufacturers. Our metal substructures are made with accredited alloys and each case includes an Identalloy certificate for the patient record.

Metal Free Restorations

Zirconia Solid

Zirconia Full/Solid is monolithic and made from 100% pure zirconia. At 1200 MPa, the Zirconia has a comparable flexural strength of traditional PFM restorations while maintaining a natural and vibrant translucency.

The product is 100% metal-free, a feature that prevents gingival darkening and removes the possibility of exposing metallic margins if gum recession begins. They are naturally esthetic, transmit the color of adjacent teeth, and can be matched to any shade. Zirconia Solid is one of the strongest restorations available for any patient who may have bruxing or grinding issues. Utilizing CAD/CAM technology, it also has a precise marginal fit that can significantly reduce chair time. Since traditional cementation is recommended, there is no need to bond the restoration.

Zirconia HT

Zirconia HT (High Translucent) – At 590-720 MPa, the Zirconia HT is much stronger than porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) restorations while maintaining a natural and vibrant translucency.

The product is 100% metal-free, a feature that prevents gingival darkening and removes the possibility of exposing metallic margins if gum recession begins. They are naturally esthetic, transmit the color of adjacent teeth, and can be matched to any shade

Zirconia Layered

  • Extremely strong for multi-unit bridges where IPS e.max cannot be used.
  • Beautiful, natural looking esthetics.
  • By layering porcelain of the facials and buccal only, even long span bridges can look amazing.
  • Perfect for hiding dark or discolored stumps.
  • No concerns for “dark lines” at the gum.
  • No known allergies / sensitivities

IPS e.max®

IPS e.max® is an advanced pressed ceramic with even greater strength than the original Empress product. This next generation ceramic is formulated from lithium disilicate crystals, and can be used to create limited bridgework with moderate to heavy connectors. It is monolithic lithium disilicate porcelain that can be pressed or milled as full contour restoration, or cut back and layered with porcelain.
